    Can Acrobat's OCR software recognize vertical text?


      Version:  Abobe Acrobat 9 Standard 9.5.0

      OS:  Windows XP Pro


      The PDF document that I am trying to convert has text going in multiple directions.  Some text is horizontal (going from left to right on the page).  And some text is vertical (going from bottom to top on the page).


      Is there a way to get the OCR software to recognize the vertical text?  I can only get it to recognize the horizontal text.


      I tried rotating the page (Document > Rotate Pages).  This didn't work.



      Thank you.
